Director Best Represented In Your Collection

This could say a lot about a person. I'll start:

I have 472 discs/sets, here are my top five:

1. Takashi Miike 17
2. Tim Burton 9
3. Russ Meyer 7
4. Sam Raimi 6
4. Peter Jackson 6
4. Kevin Smith 6
4. Kim Ji-Woon 6
4. John Waters 6
4. George Romero 6
5. The Coen Brothers 5
5. Stanley Kubrick 5
5. Robert Rodriguez 5
5. Quentin Tarantino 5
5. Jim Jarmusch 5

Oh, if you count box sets and the individual titles, Alfred Hitchcock is number 2 with 14 titles, and Steven Speilberg jumps in with 6 including the Indiana Jones movies.
